Damp proofing & tanking in Oxford

Advanced Damp completed a damp proofing job in Oxford on the 19th October 2022.

Project Details

  • The customer was searching for a reliable company to conduct a damp survey on their home in Oxford. The property was a victorian house that was constructed of six-inch solid brick walls, timber suspended floors, clay-tiled roof and rendered walls. Overall the property was well maintained but clearly needed some work done to renew the currently affected DPC.

    The Dampness:

    Internally, 5 walls of the ground floor showed signs of rising damp and rotten skirting boards. We took moisture readings of all the affected walls and readings were averaging out at 90% indicating a faulty damp proof course, and the need for immediate treatment.

    Our damp specialists suggested  a cementitious tanking system to internal walls and a new damp proof injection is installed. 

    Incorrect Plaster: The walls had undergone works in the past that had utilised bonding plasters; such finishes can and will often absorb internal water vapour where condensation exists. Moisture readings were noted at higher levels on the wall here.

How did we treat the damp?

Our Treatment Recommendation:

Install a new chemical damp proof course, BBA approved tanking system, SIKA waterproof render and skim finish to the internal side of the walls up to 1.2 metres.

Inefficient Plaster: apply chemical damp proof course, waterproof render and skim finish to full height.
